There was vomit on the carpet. I washed, steamed and tried to boot out the remaining water. Now there is a water stain.

I mix vanish liquid with water in a spray bottle instead of buying the spray stain remover. Its cheaper and lasts longer. It works brilliantly.

Wax - place thick brown paper over wax on the carpet and carefully iron it, as if you were ironing a shirt, the wax should life easily. Don't leave it in one place run over evenly. I have done this.

I see that Julie claims that making a paste and putting on the stain then wash. WELL my wife did that on some of my coloured clothing and now it looks like she tried tye dyed the bonds singlet and my pj bottoms.

If you have stains on marble or granite bench tops, mix vanish to a paste and spread on the stain. Leave for a couple of hours and the stains will vanish

Tea on Other


If your tea cups and mugs are stained inside, fill a sink with hot water and add a capful of Vanish. Soak the cups for a couple of hours and they will come back to white.

I always keep a bucket of water and Napisan mixture in the laundry trough. The family know that anything with a stain is put in that bucket. Also any whites that are off colour. Then on laundry day the contents are put in the washing machine.
